From what I understand, the assistant coaches' contracts end 3/31.J.J. wrote: ↑Tue Mar 02, 2021 12:47 pm
If they decide not to renew, then we have to have a plan while a search is underway. That means paying an assistant as the "interim" head coach until they find a new head coach. It is possible that the school doesn't want to start paying an "interim" until 4/15. But that is just a guess. I honestly have no clue what is happening in Davidson or Kaiser Hall.
I could see them wanting to wait until 4/15 to HIRE someone so that they aren't paying 2 coaches. But it shouldn't inhibit their ability to SEARCH for a new coach.
Also, I believe the women's coaches contracts are all up on 3/31 as well, so there's a lot for the athletic department to figure out in a short period of time.
